Monitor your propane flame
« on: May 03, 2005, 09:23:05 AM »
Last month coming back home in the coach, our refrigerator stopped working on propane. It worked fine on shore power and inverter but the flame wouldn't light when switching to propane. Called Norcold and they reminded me that the burner should be cleaned out once a year and that might be the problem.

Opening up the outside refrigerator access panel, first I found a small vacant (thankfully) hornet's nest. A lot of debris was also found around the burner. After cleaning out the burner area and vacuuming the debris, the refer now works fine again on propane.

Just a reminder to all to clean out your hot water heater and refrigerator annually to avoid being shut down until you remember about cleaning it out.
